The Glorious World of Crowns, Kinks, and Curls is a 90-minute collection of monologues in the tradition of For Colored Girls… with memorable lines such as: “If you have the courage to walk tall in a world that makes you feel small, then maybe other women and little girls will feel like they can, too. “The Glorious World of Crowns, Kinks and Curls is a play about self-love," echoed Director Bianca LaVerne Jones.
I can agree with Jones. As I watched the play, I recalled various conversations with (or lessons from) various women that seemed to have been repeated in the play. “Don’t ever touch a Black woman’s hair without her permission,” and the corresponding story that wraps around that declaration has been shared with me recently by my friend Ida.
